BABES IN THE WOOD. London: Hutchinson & Co. (Publishers) Limited, n.d. [1929]. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-286 [287-288: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], title page printed in orange and black, original black cloth, front panel stamped orange and blind, spine panel stamped in orange. First edition. Five rather longish stories. "The 'Lost Generation'" is a metafictional jeu d'esprit about a mining engineer named Hemingway who sounds an awful lot like the author of that name, if he were a bit older and had gone into a different line of work in some parallel universe. He is just as adamantly anti-romantic, and, when he lets his guard down in Paris, he gets into trouble. French bookstore stamp on front paste-down. Pencil ownership signature on front free endpaper of Ladies Imperial Club. Slight spine lean, lower front corner tip worn, a very good copy. (#119367).

Price: $25.00
